Community Research Institute 

A Collaboration Between Charleston Southern University College of Business and Abbey Research

What is the Community Research Institute?

We exist to create pragmatic solutions for business leaders based on evidence and research. This research is collected directly by CRI, but we also rely on existing data collected from organizations such as Gallup. Their research, however, focuses on corporate behavior and other large groups of people. CRI seeks to analyze and interpret that data for the smaller business environment.
